You can't do these things from within dhcpd, but they are certainly
possible using the BIND tools. In particular look at the man page for
nsupdate, and the BIND Administrator Reference Manual (a set of web
pages that are installed with the bind tools, location depends on your
unix/linux distro), also online at and
follow the links in the documentation section.
